Teachers need an understanding of theory about second language learning. They also need to know how principles have been translated successfully into practice in the classroom.
This course links theory with practice in teaching the four macroskills: listening, speaking, reading and writing with vocabulary and grammar incorporated. Language learning objectives and outcomes are based on a student learning orientation aimed at developing communicative competence in contexts that are socially and culturally relevant. Principles of second language teaching methodology are grounded in principles of second language learning that are addressed in the LIN8001 course and are assumed knowledge for this course. It is highly recommended that LIN8001 be studied prior to LIN8002.
Course learning outcomes
The course objectives define the student learning outcomes for a course. The assessment item(s) that may be used to assess student achievement of an objective are shown in parenthesis. On successful completion of this course students should be able to:
- reflect on principles of second language teaching and teaching practice (Assignment 1);
- generate macroskills and functions in developing language proficiency (Assignment 2);
- illustrate inter-relationships that exist among the macroskills by analysing research evidence which demonstrates such relationships in teaching design (Assignment 2);
- construct tasks and techniques used in classrooms in each of the macroskills, showing how they are derived from theory, supported by research and expressed in learner based objectives and outcomes. Provide language use examples (Assignment 2);
- explain how vocabulary development takes place and recommend techniques that can be used to enhance such development in socio-cultural contexts that are relevant (Assignments 1 and 2);
- examine the place of grammar in second language teaching focus on form and communicative competence (Assignments 1 and 2).
